Testud vs Hantuchova interesting matchup

I am curious how this match up will pan out, what form willl Sandrine be in, will Daniela's confidence still be on a roll or did lindsay deflate that. I don't really expect an upset but tis a tough ist round for Sandrine to come back on. I would like to see both girls do well but alsa one must be sent packing on day 1.
Dokic has Bovina and Pierce to worry about. In case you haven't seen the draw here it is
Clijsters (1) – Bye
Daniilidou – Sanchez-Lorenz
Pisnik – Chladkova
Stevenson – Farina-Elia (7)

Schnyder (3) – Bye
Vento-Kabchi - Q/LL
Loit – Schiavone (5)

Serna (8) – Mandula
Pierce – Dechy
Bovina - Q/LL
Bye - Dokic (4)

Smashnova (6) – Golovin
Testud – Hantuchova
Cohen-Aloro - Q/LL
Bye - Dementieva (2)

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Sandrine will have to be in alot better form she was in on Friday.
then again so does Dani (but Dani didnt lose to someone ranked near 200 0-6 3-6)

Dani will win in 2 sets, only the Parisian crowd can affect the total amount of games Sandrine wins.

Good luck to my favs

Wow, Golovin vs Smashnova-Pistolesi again... cue draw-rigging accusations Go Tati!

Last week, Sandrine lost a set to Nuria Llagostera Vives and lost emphatically to Virag Nemeth, while Daniela beat Alicia Molik and Maria Sharapova. On current form, there's no contest.

go sadrine!!! good luck on your first match back on the wta tour

i didnt think i would say this but... she has a TOUGH match against hantuchova

as for the crowd... i do think that will play a huge factor... and hantuchova has been known to be emotionally weak during tough times in matches (vs. harkleroad @ FO)

as for a final result.. i do expect daniela to win in straight sets but dont count sadrine out... shes quite the little giant killer so i wouldnt be overly surprised if she pulled off an upset

Good luck to both!

Tough opening round for Sandrine but sometimes it's best to play someone tough early when you may catch them off guard.

As for recent results, Sandrine tailed off last week in Ortisei so maybe her conditioning is not quite there yet. She'll definitely have her hands full against Daniela but Sandrine is clearly underdog so she has nothing to lose. Dani seems to be recovering nicely from last season's funk.

My take is Daniela is the favorite but if Sandrine plays loose she can make this match competitive. A win is not out of the question especially if Daniela gets the jitters.
